Hey y'all. Happy Thursday! Just one more day until the weekend. I don't know about you but sometimes on these "short" weeks, I'm even more ready for the weekend than I normally am. It's a rainy, gloomy, day here in the DMV and I really wish I could be somewhere outside where it's sunny and beautiful (preferably near the ocean) instead of inside looking out at the blah. On the upside, at least I have a window at work to look out of. :) Glass half-full and all that. I hope it's sunny wherever you might be.
Well, for those of you that haven't heard, my daughter's getting married.
I don't know why but every time I say or write that I want to follow it up with "Married!?!", "Yes. Married. Geesh!" Yes, for many of you this confirms that I'm just a big ole Geek and 16 Candles Mega-Fan. I can't help it, it's one of my All-Time Favorite Movies. :D
Any-whoo, baby girl's getting married. Just a small event with some of her nearest and dearest. She and her sweet fiance Jordan gave me all of a months notice. WHAT!?! Yep. So, that means invites had to get done and quick. We all sat down in the studio and about 30minutes later, had a plan. Now I've just got to mass produce the invites and all will be good. Her colors are Purple and Teal. It's a shame my girl's afraid of a little color. Hahaha!
Here's what we came up with-
|Wedding Invitation featuring|
Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder
|See, isn't this a pretty effect?|
|Sorry for the shadowy, dark image. It's kind of hard to take the picture with my non-dominant hand while I try to give the impression that I'm coloring. :)|
|BTW- I used Perfect Plum, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade for the colors|
Pretty big difference. This gives such a soft, elegant effect. It was pretty just like this, even more so after it was mounted to the Island Indigo c/s. I did add just a few small pearls for a finishing touch.
I know you're probably asking yourself "Where's the inside, Shan? You always do an inside." Well, I'm working on it. I just have to tweak the coloring a little in MDS and then it will be completed. I'll be sure to post that soon.

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the resin.
